Aloha, I am Mary Fox, R (B) and owner of 2 Papayas, LLC. I manage this wonderful Puako home on behalf of the Owners. I would love to help you and your family find the perfect home for your stay on the Big Island. I am a Waialea Bay resident, myself, so I am available to greet you upon arrival, answer any questions you may have, or attend to any concerns or requests that may arise during your stay. Until we meet in Paradise....
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Ehu Kai. It was recommended to us by a very good friend who had stayed there. It is a very comfortable small house with a nice covered porch from which you can see the ocean through the trees. It is a very short walk down a pretty path to a lovely beach with lots of shade and good snorkling. It is also on a hiking trail that runs along the coast and allows you to walk north to Hapuna beach and south to Puako Bay. It is very quiet and private. If you want to get away from civilization to read, relax, swim, hike this place is a great choice. If you want air conditioning, a big screen tv, nearby restaurants and shopping you would likely not be happy here. It was just what we were looking for and we loved our stay. We loved the outdoor hot shower and the grills, both charcoal and gas. The kitchen is adequate for meal preparation----we prepared and ate all our meals at the house for the week. This place is not fancy, but very comfortable. The property managers are very nice and helpful and also rent kayaks, surfboards, stand-up paddle boards and bikes which they will deliver to the house. There are beach chairs and mats, boogie boards and some snorkling gear at the house. We would definitely come back again and would recommend it to family and friends.
The house is well equipped for cooking and enjoying the beach, which is a 2-minute walk from the back yard. The house is located in an area that has limited development. Hence, there are less cars and people here than other locations in this part of the island.
The house lacks air conditioning and can get warm on hot days when the wind is not blowing. However, the house is shaded by trees, the wind usually blows, there are many windows to open, and there are ceiling and floor fans to enhance the breeze.
The beach sand and water were very clean. Week days the beach had few people but it wasn't crowded on the weekend. There are trees on the beach so you can move between shade, full sun, and dappled sunlight. There were some folding beach chairs at the house we conveniently used every day.
The Wi-Fi worked well.
This house is mere steps away from the best beach on the island, maybe in all of Hawaii. Our third time staying here, can't wait to get back. The BBQ is a huge bonus, we were able to cook up some tasty dinners and enjoy the sunsets from the front deck.
I am hesitant to give Ehu Kai an excellent review because I don't want the secret to get out and make it more difficult for me to reserve again. ;-)
This little gem is perfect for a couple or one or two small children who can sleep on a pull-out sofa and futon. Ehu Kai (Sea Spray) is located in a gated private residential area at the far end of the beach from the public access making it quiet and relaxing, a perfect get-away. The sea was calm and clear and great for snorkeling when we were there. The pictures do not do it justice. The house had all the amenities you could want, including a 2 car carport, gas barbecue, washer and dryer, beach chairs and accessories. It was clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor shower, which had warm water, as well as the foot shower located inside our private gate leading to the beach, steps away. We lived outside and only slept in the house. We will be back.
We really enjoyed our stay at this one-bedroom at beach 69. It has lots of wood, is well kept, well equipped and is in an awesome location. Just a short walk from the quiet end of the beach which has shade and great snorkling. Hapuna is a quick drive down the road and has nice waves for body boarding and is a great beach. While there we were able to explore the north of the island to see hawi and some great valley with a black sand beach. The tv is kind of small but we never turned it on so that was not an issue for us. Lots of beach equipment to use as well. We got married in front on the beach and it was a great spot for sunsets.
